Young Adult Program 

One of Oregon's Top Drug and Alcohol Addiction Program for Young Adults

BLVD Treatment Center has a robust, specialized daytime program Monday through Friday beginning at 9:30 AM and ending at 2:30 pm (for the first few weeks). As the clients show stability the intensity of our treatment will slowly decrease. A slow transition into life with a great deal of coaching and mentoring has made this program a huge success!

Young adults are the least likely to maintain and sustain long-term sobriety. That does not have to be the reality of young adults who are addicted. At our treatment center we have discovered that the key to helping young adults ages 18 to 30ish stay clean and sober is to create an atmosphere of fun, comradely and social acceptability to be in recovery. Our facility maintains a very fun atmosphere through treatment groups and activities specific to young adults. 

Our Young Adult Program 

We use an evidence-based curriculum, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, advanced relapse prevention with scenarios, questions and refusal skills that specifically are written for young adults. Our young adult program goes on weekly outings to play paintball, go rock climbing and visit many other places in Portland. In addition, our young adults are required to do five hours of community service a month; we help them sign up at a local place. When they go to work they do not have to continue community service but we feel young adults need to place an emphasis on education or employment. We work with our young adults to gain employment, make a budget, do laundry, get their GED, go to college or do the FASFA for college. It has been our experience that many young adults have not learned the basic life skills to be successful due to the alcohol/drug use they began at a very young age. We have mentors that take clients to meetings, teach them appropriate skills, take them to meetings and are available 24/7 to talk.

Friday nights at 6 PM there is a young adult AA meeting at BLVD Treatment Center that all of the young adult clients attend. It’s called Happy Hour. Creating a peer culture of “it’s cool to be clean and sober” is our goal on a daily basis and we engage the young adults in a myriad of fun activities to help them learn how to be okay without the use of alcohol or drugs. Having clients with an assigned chaperones, that are living at their houses, (for the first few weeks) builds leadership and has proven to be a great way to create bonds between a successful client and the new client.

 

BLVD Treatment Center employ's a talented art therapist that the clients meet with for two hours a week. BLVD Treatment Center has a doctor on staff that every client sees; as well as a yoga instructor who does recovery yoga each week.

 

Different age groups have different needs in substance abuse treatment; the young adult population requires a different set of skills. Our Counselors are Masters level clinician’s and all have an extensive background in working with youth, teenagers and young adults. 

 

We have staff that works at the 4th Dimension young adult sober club and our clients regularly go there after treatment to participate in dances, parties and recovery meetings.

Young Adult Specialty Program

BLVD has a robust, specialized daytime and IOP treatment program Monday through Friday. As the client shows stability, the intensity of treatment will slowly decrease. A slow transition into life with a great deal of coaching and mentoring has made this program a huge success.

Most people believe that young adults are the least likely to maintain and sustain long-term sobriety. Well, that does not have to be the reality of young adults today. At our treatment center, we have discovered that the key to helping young adults stay clean and sober is to create an atmosphere of fun, comradery and social acceptability to be in recovery. Our facility maintains a trauma informed and comfortable atmosphere through treatment groups and activities specific to young adults.

Our young adult program goes on weekly outings, such as laser tag, paint-ball, rock climbing, local museums and many other places in Portland, OR. We work with our young adults to gain employment, make a budget, build life skills, get their GED and go to college.

We have mentors that take clients to meetings, teach them appropriate skills and are available 24/7 to talk.

In addition to all of this, we help coordinate ongoing mental health therapy and medication when necessary.

Friday nights at 6 PM there is a young adult AA meeting at BLVD called "Happy Hour" that all of the young adult clients attend. Creating a peer culture of "it's cool to be clean and sober” is our goal on a daily basis and we engage the young adults in a myriad of fun activities to help them learn how to enjoy life without the use of alcohol or drugs.

Our sober living homes have an assigned chaperone that lives at the houses, (for the first few weeks). This builds leadership and has proven to be a great way to create bonds between senior peers and the new clients.

BLVD has a doctor on staff that each new client sees. Some young adults benefit from medication assisted treatment for certain disorders. BLVD will prescribe and monitor these medications. 

We partner with a local young adult sober club and our clients regularly attend after treatment. Clients participate in dances, parties and recovery meetings.
